Scuba Diving on the Alaska Border

Location: Green Inlet, British Columbia, Foggy Bay and Ketchikan, Alaska

Comments: Started today off with a “mystery dive” on a pinnacle just north of Green Islet lighthouse. There was a wee bit more current than I expected but the divers reported that the diving on the wall and tumbles on the backside of the pinnacle was excellent with loads of white plumose anemones and other typical pacific northwest life. Other divers wandered onto the flats and investigated under and around the large boulders with less success. The Nautilus Explorer is the only liveaboard dive boat that ventures in central and northern British Columbia, the Queen Charlotte Islands and Alaska (heck, we are basically the only liveaboard diveboat in B.C. period!) and each and every one of our divesites up here started off as a mystery dive based on one of my hunches. Our guests are usually wonderful patient and allow me to stage a couple of mystery, exploratory dives. I can’t begin to describe the thrill of discovering a new divesite that rocks even more than famous Browning Wall by Port Hardy!!
